    commit: pass author/committer info to hooks · 7dfe8ad6
    Junio C Hamano authored
    When lying the author name via GIT_AUTHOR_NAME environment variable
    to "git commit", the hooks run by the command saw it and could act
    on the name that will be recorded in the final commit. When the user
    uses the "--author" option from the command line, the command should
    give the same information to the hook, and back when "git command"
    was a scripted Porcelain, it did set the environment variable and
    hooks can learn the author name from it.
    
    However, when the command was reimplemented in C, the rewritten code
    was not very faithful to the original, and hooks stopped getting the
    authorship information given with "--author".  Fix this by exporting
    the necessary environment variables.
